Hand-held analyser measures moisture in gases
Thursday 7 January 2010Moisture in gases and compressed air can cause considerable damage, so it is vitally important to perform regular checks. The latest device for this purpose is called "Hydrobaby", and is available from Witt.
The hand-held analyser has been developed for mobile use. It features a ceramic metal oxide sensor that determines the humidity of the gas from the dew point.This is generally recognised as a superior method: very quick and precise measurements, significantly lower sensitivity to environmental temperature, very low error of measurement (+/- 2°C) and a large measurement range of -110 to +20 °C are real advantages over alternative sensor systems.
